This War of Mine developer 11 Bit Studios has announced all sales proceeds it receives from the game will be donated to Ukrainian Red Cross for the next week.
In a statement posted to the team’s social channels, the studio confirmed that all the money it receives from This War of Mine on all platforms will go toward helping those affected by the Russian attack on Ukraine. The survival game is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Mac, Linux, and both Android and iOS mobile devices. Regardless of which store you buy from, the money will still go to Ukrainian Red Cross. So, for example, if you want the game on PC, it won’t matter if you get it from Steam or Epic Games Store. Notably, This War of Mine is on sale on Steam alongside this push. This will also apply to the game’s paid DLC.
The full statement reads as follows:
Today Russian military forces attacked the free country of Ukraine – our neighbours. As a Polish game studio and creators of the globally recognised anti-war game, This War of Mine – one that directly speaks about the suffering and misery of civilians who are affected by war – we’d like to hereby announce our company statement: we stand against the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Just words would be empty without a meaningful act though, and the timing is crucial, so that act is as follows: for the next seven days, all profits from This War of Mine, all its DLCs, on all stores and all platforms will go to a special fund. A week from now, this money will be donated to the Ukrainian Red Cross to directly support victims of war in Ukraine.
Let this message resonate with everything you know about this war and how war kills people, devastates their lives and homes. Let us – players and developers together – do everything we can to support victims of war in Ukraine.
